This hotel was converted from Water tower. The architectural design was great. The room was a bit small, however it is functional and good size for a german hotel. The free minibar was a great welcome.

This reconverted water tower is absolutely stunning... The building itself is quite a sight from outside but as much impressive from the inside... Other than the structure of the building, they have kept some of the original internal features, including a beautiful spiral staircase. The bedrooms are in need of modernisation (there is currently a refurbishment taking place in the... More

Not quite Five Star, it is trying very hard, however I suggest they hire a general manager who understands Five Star service and quality, concierge good, check in good, bartenders girlfriend sat at the bar all night on our first night, not good, garden not enough light to see each other in the evening, service ok but again no style....

We stayed two night at the Hotel Im Wasserturm, a nice enough hotel with a nice view at Cologne, but this hotel does not distinguish itself by no means whatsoever, not what you expect from a five-star hotel. The rooms are nice enough, clean and quite spacious, but at the price they are charging, you should be blown away. The... More

Wonderful stay here in this amazing hotel. Really loved the design, certainly the coolest building in Cologne to stay in. Great room, we had one of the duplex suites, so much space to relax in with lots of nice little extra touches (the lip balm on the pillows each night was particularly great idea!) The bed was perhaps the most... More

I chanced upon a very good last minute offer for this Hotel and decided to stay there rather than our usual preference, the Crowne Plaza. What a good decision; this modern hotel based on a historic tower is tremendous.

Great location, great breakfast, friendly staff but I expected more of the building. It was a nice experience but I don't think we would go back. It s a hotel that isn't far from the Christmas market so that's a big advantage. Another advantage is that they have a private parking.

This "hotel" is in a converted water tower, and the architecture is quite stunning. It has been done up in some style, and it's priced accordingly - meaning it isn't a great value exactly, but it is very cool. The bar is also extremely expensive, though very well fitted out. If you want to go upscale and you don't mind... More

I stayed one night on business, and the hotel was booked for me, so I had no idea what to expect. I immediately loved the quirkiness of the water tower, and the beautiful way it had been restored inside and out, with lots of exposed brickwork, tall arches and a 360 degree balcony all around the floor my room was...

What an amazing hotel! The very friendly lady at the reception was very welcoming, was able to speak in many languages and made us happy with a double upgrade. Great, if you have a prettier room available why not offer it to your clients? It made us feel special! The room (suite) was a beautiful, spacious, light accomodation with a... More
